#115 of 169 2006 Avalon Door Sills and Speakers
Apr 24, 2006 (7:14 am)
I have a 2006 Avalon XL. Does anyone know where I can buy the door sill plates that say Avalon on them (like on the touring model? Also, has anyone replaced the factory 6/12 inch door speakers? I have the 6-DISC in dash unit but not the JBL. If so what brand and model did you use and did this improve the sound? Did it also help the vibration/rattle when the base is turned up?

#116 of 169 power window not working
May 15, 2006 (2:51 pm)
I have a 1997 Avalon and bought it used about 2 years ago. Now my front passenger and rear driverside windows (funny they are diagonally) are not working. I checked for power and they have. I checked the switches and they work. I checked manually the power window works fine when powered directly. I tried looking for the fuse but couldn't find the fuse in the engine compartment and driverside underdash fuse box area. Is there another fuse box for just the power windows? Help.
Proud to be a Avalon owner.

I'm not sure but it's probably your window motor. Take it to a dealer or mechanic - it shouldn't be a big deal to fix but will cost some money.

Thanks for the reply. I check the motor and it goes up and down manually with a direct contact from the battery. Some how the switch is not working with the wires. The wires have juice to the motor and switch. I tested the switch to see if it works with the other windows and it works fine.
Have a nice day,

#121 of 169 New 2006 XLS
May 21, 2006 (4:03 pm)
We just bought a new 2006 Avalon XLS. I am taking it in for some minor fixes and thought I'd mention it here if anyone has some ideas. The first is an easy fix - driver side fog lamp lens is loose. The second, and last, is a tick/click in the dash somewhere under the steering column. I probably would not even hear it except I usually drive without the stereo on. Anyway, the dealer will say it's nothing or they cannot find the cause. Just wondering if anyone has heard this tick (more ticks on rougher roads) and found the solution.
Thanks for any help.

Does it sound like a squeak or creak when you step on a wood floor?

No melbc - it sounds like a tap. A bundled wire harness could make this sound if it was close to the dash housing - just close enough to hit intermitently. Anyway, very minor - I love the car! Had a Camry Hybrid on order, but got tired of waiting. Now I'm happy they couldn't find it!
#124 of 169 Auto door lock when drive is engaged
Jun 27, 2006 (8:59 pm)
I would like to prevent the doors from locking automatically when the car is put into drive or reverse.Or even auto unlock when the car is put into park.
As it is now every time I stop I have to unlock the doors to prevent my passengers from yanking on the handles when they wont open.
